I will definitely return when I am next in the area.

We went to that pub last night, our b&b lady recommended as a best pub in Keswick. We booked a table at 8:45pm because they was really busy and we couldn't have earlier table . We turn up a bit earlier, we take drinks and wait for table. Waitress was really nice give us her attention all the time. When... More

Visiting Keswick again, and couldn't resist a return visit to this lovely restaurant. Yet again, the staff were very attentive and the food was wonderful. And one of the girls even recognised us when we went in. I read some criticism of the fish pie on here, and can't understand what some people want. I had it, and it was... More

This is one of our favourite pubs in Keswick so it is not surprising that it is such a busy spot. It's definitely worth booking ahead, even at times you wouldn't think would be busy! We ate here twice on our recent trip and enjoyed both meals. They seem to have expanded the menu a little recently as my husband... More

This is one of our favourite dining pubs in Keswick where you almost guaranteed to get good service and good food reasonably priced. No wonder it seems always busy in the evening that's why they have two sitting and reservation is recommended. However, the bar room is available on first come first served.

The owner of our B&B recommended The Pheasant as being good food at reasonable prices and he was absolutely right. We hadn't booked and the bar area was very busy, the tables were tightly packed in but we were lucky that the parties either side weren't too offensive! The food was delicious, my husband had the pie and was raving... More

We have tried a number of places to eat in Keswick and been a little underwhelmed with the food but this is certainly one of the nicest pubs in the area. The food is well-cooked and plentiful and there is a large menu plus a specials board using local ingredients. One of the specialities is fish pie which is delicious... More
